MAKING is a tool to inspire designers and creators to make better choices in the materials they use. We know that every decision a designer makes in the product creation process has an impact on the environment. But given the range of options that exist, making informed choices can be a challenge. That is why MAKING matters. â€¨â€¨Powered by the Nike Materials Sustainability Index, MAKING provides the information to enable users to make realâ€time, predictive decisions. Whether you are a designer, a product creator or are just interested in the impacts of the materials you use, MAKING will help you make better choices. â€¨How it works â€¨â€¨Nike has been investing in ways to design more sustainable products for years. In order to best support Nike designers, the company spent seven years creating theâ€¨ Nike Materials Sustainability Index (MSI). Nike MSI was created using the best publicly disclosed information related to the environmental impacts of materials. â€¨â€¨Now Nike is putting this information in the hands of makers in order to inspire better choices that support more sustainable design.â€¨â€¨ MAKING includes data from Nike MSI on widely used materials and allows users to rank them based on four key impact areas: Chemistry, Energy/Greenhouse Gas Intensity, Water/Land Intensity, and Physical Waste. In this first release, the materials in MAKING are those used in apparel and home goods. â€¨â€¨Each impact is weighted based on specific indicators, and each material included in MAKING is assigned a base material score. Materials are rated out of a possible 50 points with higher scores indicating a more positive environmental impact. More information on Nike MSI and the scoring mechanism used can be found by visiting www.Nikemakers.com.â€¨â€¨ MAKING is an easy-Âto-Âuse reference guide to compare the impacts of materials. There are many other opportunities to design better products, and we know that MAKING is just the beginning of your journey.â€¨â€¨The choice is in your hands.
